Date set for new pool opening

The Broken Bow Aquatic center is nearing completion, and the Broken Bow City Council voted today to plan a celebration around its opening. As long as the weather cooperates, the pool will open to the public at noon May 28, with a celebration and ribbon cutting planned for the following Saturday. "Outdoor pools are weather sensitive," reminded City Parks Superintendent Dan Anderson at Monday's City Council meeting.A budget of $3,000 has been approved for the celebration for food and fun drawings, including a family fun pass. In addition, the council signed a proclamation observing Arbor Day. This is approximately the 33rd year that Broken Bow has been declared a Tree City USA>For more on Monday's city council meeting, see this week's Custer County Chief.
